    Bad weather can also be nice, but it needs to add something to the shot. White plane against grey sky is hard to edit for a mostly not very pleasing result. Looking at your rejects, some seem to border on backlit, others seem to be taken on very hazy/foggy days, those can not be fixed in most cases.

      You're not a nuisance but definitely, sometimes the weather isn't at its best and it's a clever idea to keep shots for your personal collection - We all went on spotting trips where unfortunately the weather sucks (5 times at LHR for me, 1h of sun in TOTAL) - What I think is good to remember is that we should not be shooting for JP but for our collection first - Then if you are more selective with what you upload, your portfolio looks much nicer too - And for the bad weather shots, if you really want to publish them, why not use Flickr where you can manage everything, without the damn screeners
      I personally never upload a picture where there's no sun on the aircraft unless it's a very rare plane (but that's just me)

      A fine answer with the realities of spotting
